Nature's presence and the technology of death: Reflections on healing and domination

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

The experiences of several Holocaust sites are placed into the context of philosophical ideas about the meaning of the environmental and the technological crisis and the practice of human domination. Linking together an analysis of genocide and ecocide, the human induced destruction of nature, using the idea of domination, a harmonious human relationship is developed with both the natural world and his fellow human beings. Man must resist the practice of domination in all of its forms, even domination by the `good' through technology. He must preserve the free and autonomous development of human individuals, communities and natural systems and understand the moral limits of his power to control nature and his fellow human beings.
